Day 64. Oliver Jeffers is a name that kept being recommended, so today we read Stuck. The plot revolves around a kite stuck in a tree, and the escalating attempts to remove it (old woman who swallowed a fly style). I'm divided on this one. I was with it until about half-way when I felt that the situation went over a line and into ridiculous territory where I ceased to enjoy it. My husband disagrees - he said it was okay - silly, but okay. Hmm. I also wasn't a terrific fan of the illustrations, or the hand-written style text, and so all together for me I don't think I'd volunteer to read this one. Definitely Master A's call.
Master A's verdict: Difficult to interest him in this one, but, to be fair, probably for an older child.
